It's fall and it sure feels like it. What's the difference between feeling and what is?

A good CEO reassesses where they are right now and what they have to do to accomplish their goals for year's end. How about you? Any goals? Any progress? Any plan for the rest of the year?

Cameron and I are taking music class this fall. He knows I have more to learn about music and carrying a tune than he does. Well, we're never too old to learn. Cameron is right again.

Why worry about your goals. Just take action. Action is the missing ingredient so often. You only have to take the next step, the one in front of you. Once you do that then the next one will show up. Things show up only when we are ready. That's life.

Time is running out. This is your last chance, your last notice. So, if you are still wondering if you should respond to the MASTER MIND group forming, do so TODAY. Why not find out about it? We might even schedule a local RI group in person. Interested? Curious? Contact Cameron or Russell.


PS: What do you need a TOOLKIT for?

Spotlight Article

You are the CEO, the Chief Eecuitve Officer, of your life.

Being a CEO it’s important to review the positive traits of a good CEO.

The best CEO is a Kid. Do as kids do. Act like a kid. Think like a kid. Use kids as role models.

Kids have energy. They keep going and keep pushing themselves until it’s time to sleep; and then they sleep well, resting and recharging. They are not afraid to take a nap when tired, and don’t worry about the ‘work week’. Kids recharge and keep going.

Kids are fearless. They have not learned the adult fear model that stops adults from doing and being. Fear itself does not stop them. They have not yet entered the world of judgment and ridicule.

Kids are persistent. They keep going and doing. They do the impossible as they do not know that they can’t do it. They have not been programed to failure.

Kids are creative. They are learning and growing. They try things, they change things, and they explore. Without the mind programing of adults, they explore and stretch theselves.

Kids take risk. They are not even aware it’s a risk. For a kid, life is an adventure to be lived, enjoyed, and examined.

Kids communicate. Even without words kids know how to communicate and they know how to get what they want.

Kids have great control of others regardless of knowledge, weath, or position in life.

Kids accept all as equals and communicate with looks, attention, hugs, and kisses. Who can resist a kid who is paying attention to them? Even if it is for a snack.

Kids make friends easily. They know how to steal another’s heart. They enjoy making friends and they enjoy the control they have over another person. They fight, forgive, and continue the friendship. They let go of the issues and move forward in their relationships.

Kids share. Sharing is, at times, a challenging lesson, but kids do share. They like to play with one another's toys and feel free to do so.

Why can’t we CEOs be kids? Why do we judge, hold grudges, and try to communicate with legal contracts? Why do we fear peer pressure and trying new things? Why do we focus on and fear failure? Why do we focus on the words rather than the meaning and the feeling behind the words? Why don’t we forgive?

Kids make the best CEOs. Kids know and know best. It’s our teaching and our culture that detracts from being a great CEO.

In business the best CEOs have great interpersonal skills, persistance, energy, and enthusiam like a kid. Plus, they share.

Want to be a great CEO of a company? What to be a great CEO of your life? It’s easy if you use a kid as your role model.
